The Lone Pearl in a Hollowed Chest

Location

I'll push my heart into hiding. Let it be smothered and suffocated, until it becomes a pearl. The only thing that's shining in the hollow remains of a girl. Being numb felt much better than I could've imagined. It was like soaring high over the comotion. Each pill worked better than a potion. I would not fall. I would not cry. Then you shot my wings and knocked me out of the sky, spiraling down into your arms. You held me tight and promised me I'd be alright. My heart was under pressure. It could've been a diamond. It would've been the only sparkling in the hollow remains of a girl, but your words came crashing down. There was no mercy as my hope began to drown. I'll hold your hand until the end, though I can't look you in the eyes with tears in mine. Don't bother wipin them away. Those tears will come back tonight on your pillow, just to fill an empty space. Alone, I'll push my heart into hiding. Let it be suffocated, until it becomes a pearl. The only thing that's shining , in the hollow remains of a girl.
